The Latest

2016 Hug Cellars Pinot Noir – The Best This Year

Now that I've sipped a glass or two of this lovely Pinot, excuse me while I get a towel and a cigarette. Yeah. It's that good.

So. Where Ya Been?

So what's going on now in my life? In a word, reboot. Reset. You know it feels when you've had a great nap and wake up refreshed? Yeah. That.

Tin City Block Party, Part One – Before the Party

Who knew that you'd have to have an appointment to interview some wineries on BLOCK PARTY WEEKEND?! Sheesh!

Spit or Swallow? A Tale of Two Sexes.
